Against the odds? Pathways to peace in East Timor, Aceh and West Papua
States rarely disintegrate in the way that former Yugoslavia did in the 1990s. Many thought Indonesia would disintegrate in the wake of a large number of violent internal conflicts at the turn of the century. East Timor was an exception that did break away to achieve independence. Aceh followed the more historically common path of reintegration after a peace process that made substantial concessions to separatists. West Papua is another Indonesian exception in failing to achieve positive peace a

Combining life history and life-course approaches in researching lifelong learning: some methodologi
Learning Lives is a large-scale longitudinal study into the learning biographies of adult learners, aged 25 and over. The aim of the project is to deepen understanding of the complexities of learning in the life-course whilst identifying, implementing and evaluating strategies for sustained positive impact upon learning opportunities, dispositions and practices and upon the empowerment of adult learners. From a methodological point of view, one of the more challenging dimensions of Learning Live

Integrating conceptions of learning for advancing educational practices
Introduction: I have argued elsewhere (Desforges, 2000b) that the core function of educational research is to make a contribution to the educational enterprise. Education is society's commitment to enhancing the human condition through capitalising on human potential for learning. There are many factors involved in such a mission. Better education entails better resourcing, creativity, will, energy and resourcefulness. Researchers must make their contribution by adding to the base of knowledge a

Space Station Live: Orion Recovery Testing
NASA Public Affairs Officer Dan Huot talks with Mike Sarafin, lead flight director for Orion Exploration Flight Test-1, about the Orion EFT-1 mission's recovery testing this week in southern California.
Why Species are Fuzzy
The ‘species concept’ – the definition of what constitutes a distinct species – has been a headache for biologists for at least 70 years. Recent genetic studies in natural populations have led to a revolution in the understanding of biodiversity and speciation. Species are demonstrably continuous with subspecies and varieties in nature, and intermediates in the speciation process are all around us. I will illustrate my talk with examples such as butterflies, birds and even whales. Lectu
How (Not) to Read an Academic Article
Producer (requires Internet Explorer). This is a demonstration of two approaches to reading an academic article. The first one involves lots of detailed note-taking and slow patient reading: I think the video gives some idea of the tedious nature of this approach, as does the 'alienated' commentary. The second approach demonstrates much more brisk reading for sense and understanding. I tried to 'think aloud' as I did these tasks. I also illustrate on PowerPoint some relevant ch

Meridian and Acupoint 2
Acupuncture is a complex therapeutic practice of inserting medical needles to stimulate specific anatomic points in a body (called acupoints). Based on the body of principles drawn from Yin-Yang theory, the five phase theory, and the meridian theory, manual acupuncture aims to improve symptoms through the regulation of the flow of Qi. Manual acupuncture has been frequently and successfully employed for clinical treatment in East Asian countries for numerous centuries. We will learn, memory, and
